This Week’s Top Photos from the Appalachian Trail

day 174 : this guy is katahDONE zach summited mt. katahdin today after 174 days on the trail & 2190.3 miles of walking. I think it's impossible to be any more proud of a person than I am of zach – we got to do the first half of this journey together and he finished the last half so well, all by himself. thanks to the worlds greatest in-laws (who also summited – because they are the realest) I was able to summit with zach and share the last moment of the thru-hike with him. I'll never forget it. this mountain is something special – it's the most insane, terrifying & beautiful thing I've ever done (you hike straight up that rock pile at one point, and then some) and I'm so thankful to have hiked it with zach on such a beautiful day. I can't speak to how zach feels right now – but I know I'm proud and I'm amazed at his strength and I'm so glad that he's coming home. here's to a thru-hike completed 🍻 #thegeorgestaketheat #clubsandnonstop #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrials #appalachiantrail2017 #appalachiantrailclassof2017 #at2017 #atpartycrew #atclassof2017 #nobo #nobo2017 #thetrek #TrektheAT #thruhike #mtkatahdin #mountkatahdin #katahdone
